Okayama University Hospital IVR Center


Interventional radiology is one of the most advanced minimally invasive therapies for cancer and cardiovascular diseases, and is known as IVR in Japan.

In IVR, physicians can reach target lesions in a patient’s body by using fine catheters or needles under image guidance with X-ray fluoroscopy, ultrasonography, CT, or MRI.

Without leaving any scars on the surface, patients receive complete treatments that are sometimes very similar to surgery.

Before, during, and after an operation, patients feel less pain or body changes, indicating that IVR is a gentle treatment method.

All the staff of the IVR Center of Okayama University Hospital constantly strive for further improvement of minimally invasive therapy, and never forget our noble mission as one of the top university hospitals in Japan.
